So I've been to the South Island plenty of times and this time we did a driving holiday we stopped in the pub. It is an older building but most hotels are outside on major cities I've found. I read the reviews and was apprehensive at first but upon sitting and having a drink and a meal the publican is...

Having called at this establishment just under two years ago and had a amazingly awful experience, I thought while passing again I would give it the benefit of my hard earned money. What can be said really, very dingy, very basic, no longer appears to have a "dining room", although its visible through the doorway at the side of the...

This is a local pub and makes no excuse for that! You should not go there expecting leather settees and gas log fires!! It is a practical pub for locals and passers by. I am told it is very very busy in the ski season so if you want to make sure of good and somewhere to sit you might...

I've been a regular if only occasional visitor to this hotel/pub/restaurant for nearly 30 year. I knew that the place had changed owner since my last visit but what a change! It used to have friendly welcoming owners and staff. The food was excellent if a little over sized. The residents always welcoming. After a long journey my companions and...

Over looking a field with a miniature horse grazing in straw taller than him. The menu was basic, huge portions and freshly cooked. Sadly they did not do breakfast, there are 2 other...

Although we did not stay the night in the pub we did go there for a meal. The people were friendly. I ordered the warmed seafood salad with spice seafood sauce. I got half a shredded lettuce with a few bits of cucumber, a tomato, a very small piece of salmon that was out of the water too long and...

We stayed in an ensuite hotel room located inside the main building. The good: the owners were very nice, the location is convenient, and the breakfast we ordered was surprisingly good. What we didn't expect from the official pictures was the truck-stop-combined-with-B&B feel. The room decoration reflected this split personality--on the one hand, there were little bottles of shampoo and...

Stayed here as a base to ski the Canterbury Ski Fields. The accommodation is basic backpackers which we were expecting (I have stayed in plenty of backpackers over the years). The room had 2 single beds in a room and not much else. Firstly the Good points. The backpackers is right next to a pub, close to the ski fields...
